Real Madrid defender Alvaro Arbeloa has refused to rule out the possibility of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho making an astonishing return to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
Mourinho spent three seasons with the Spanish giants, before making a return to the Premier League, winning three titles during his stint in Spain – La Liga, Copa del Rey, and the Supercopa de Espana.
Predictably, however, the Portuguese’s time in Spain wasn’t without controversy – he fell out with club legends Iker Casillas and Cristiano Ronaldo, as well as created some of the most fiery of clashes with Barcelona – even poking the eye of Barca coach Tito Vilanova in one El Clasico, as reported by the Telegraph.
Despite leaving under a dark cloud, Arbeloa insisted that his relationship with Real isn’t broken, and that he could one day make a return.
He said, “I don’t know when, but there are possibilities of him returning to Madrid,” as quoted by Sky Sports.
“I do not agree that he divided the Madridismo (Madrid supporters).”
Chelsea supporters may find speculation that their Special One could leave Stamford Bridge as fabricated nonsense, yet the 52-year-old, only last September, stated that he wouldn’t think twice about a second chance at Real Madrid.
“Yes, definitely (I would go back). It was an experience as a man and as a coach that I would repeat again without thinking twice,” as quoted by the Daily Mail.
